  • i go to Bridgham and it's very bad! The students and very bad and they talk back to their teachers. students cut classes and many used to belong to gangs. I am not lying. I am a student and i know how bridgham is. The bathrooms are very dirty and have really bad writings on the walls and swears. the outside of the school looks okay but the inside can be nicer. If you are thinking of sending your child to this school, they will be very uncomfortable and students will harass them.. well, think twice about sending your child to Bridgham.

  • I go to bridgham and it's okay. it's a very cool school and i like the way it looks on the outside. but the bathrooms are kinda messy and i think it should be more nicer. Anyways there is a handfull of teachers that care about the students, and others that don't. I'm not learning much in pre-algebra because the students talk too much and i can't concentrate much. but its not only this class, its just my experience. as long as u dont have dr.williams, your okay :-) anyways i love the school lunch food!
